Marreese Speights has had a pretty productive week for the Warriors. On Monday night, the Golden State center scored six points and grabbed six rebounds during the Warriors' blowout win against the Thunder. And on Wednesday night, he tallied 18 points and three boards against the Pacers. But according to Bay Area TV station KTVU, Speights' week didn't get off to a great start.
KTVU is reporting that Speights had a gun pulled on him very early Monday morning outside of the Cellar Night Club in San Francisco. Their report says that a group of alleged gang members approached Speights in a parking lot across the street from the club and tried to steal several gold chains that he was wearing at the time. One of the men—later identified as a convicted felon named Michael Lamont Jackson—reportedly showed Speights a gun and demanded the jewelry. But Speights refused to give it to him and ran away from the men.
As of right now, Speights hasn't spoken publicly about the alleged robbery attempt. But we'll be sure to let you know what he has to say about it when he speaks with the media sometime today.
